The Great Purge of 2017 adventure into Minimalism

Something that my husband and I have been struggling with is the idea if it is possible to be a minimalist and a prepper at the same time.  Although we may not view it the same yet, I think it is not only possible but necessary.  Having a surplus of items incase of extreme situations can be beneficial but not when it comes to the extreme and resembles a hoarder, which so many preppers do.  So we are making baby steps in order to be semi-minimalist homesteaders.  Below you can see some progress I have made in the kitchen and other areas of the home.

This is the pile of clothes that were donated from my two teenage sons room.  Crazy the excess amount of clothes they had in their room.

This is the before of one of the kitchen drawers

This is the after of one of the drawers.  Still lots of stuff but for a family of 7 it looks much better!

This is the donate box.  One of about 10 that we took in our last trip to the hospital thrift store.  The profits for all the items they sell go to help fund the local hospital.  A very worthy charity we like to donate to.

Well the Great Purge of 2017 will continue.  Especially since our weather is still super cold.  Once it warms up here we will be spending most of our time in the always.  I'll keep you posted!
